Note: This image is color-balanced for sRGB displays.

These dots represent the average color of pointillist touches containing the faulty zinc yellow. We see that the darkening of the zinc yellow changed luminous colors to earth tones. The spectra correspond to the second column representing touches of 100% zinc yellow. The background colors correspond to the average sunlit or shadowed grass in the central portion of the painting.
